I'm excited to announce two new themes being introduced as special edition themes for The Masters. 

Why two? Well truthfully I launched one earlier today and a feature didn't work out how I planned so I made up a new one that has some more Master-y appeal. The benefit is now you as users get two to pick from! 

Everything looks to be in order and working as it should, but as always if you notice anything let me know and I'll do what I can to tweak it to resolve any issues that may be there. 

I also want to take this time to point out that we also have a Masters Live Chat - I would encourage when anyone is watching this week to check out the chat and we can look to discuss more of that there in a live back and forth... 

Enjoy all!

Same thing, simply go to the bottom. Select Theme and now you will have a list of various themes to check out... At this time this is still a opt in feature, but I would love to have the membership flexible enough that we make these limited edition themes a opt out for the period of time while these events are going on. However that is a story for another day!

As I work on a few things and put a ticket in with the Dev for the community map I have disabled it as we have been seeing far too many errors and places people are but are not. Hopefully by end of week I'll have it up and running again for all.

Anything is possible! We will certainly discuss it.

Hello all!

As a mod team we wanted to provide an update to a few changes coming down the pipeline in terms of site navigation and organization. Over the coming week or two we will be making some title changes to several of the main categories and merging several other categories. For example Boomsticks will become Drivers, Shiny Metal will become Irons and an overall simpler naming/navigation of the forum will be provided for all. 

We will not simply just do these changes overnight and will notify everyone of the date a few days in advance. These changes are aimed at making the site more user friendly for all who come to the forum or who have never been on a golfing forum before. Most of us use Recent Content or Unread Content for our day to day use, however a new user often has to navigate through the main page which can be a little intimidating. Another example of a change will be merging in a few redundant categories such as General Q & A, General Talk and The 19th whole as they all work to achieve similar discussion. 

Important to note that during this process threads WILL NOT BE LOST. They will simply be moved over. As of right now as a mod team we are working on finalizing our structure and have requested that testing be crossplaced so it will show up in both testing and Driver section for example. 

Testing section will remain as is until the offseason where we will then discuss how to move forward with that. 

Content Corner: This section will be brought back and available for all with a few new highlights - One being "The Daily" this will be 4 or 5 threads that are popular to check in and post in daily. Think How Did You Play Today? and What Equipment Have You Tested? type threads. We will also include Breaking News/Viral Golf Content where the popular goings on of the day can be posted. Finally Articles of Interest, simple really as if there are popular articles/stories or articles/stores that stand out to you in the golfing world simply post there for membership to easily find. 

All the content in the above section will still show up in your recent/unread content. 

Of course if you have questions reachout via PM and we can discuss further. 

Cheers,
Mod Team

Jamie and other Mods, thanks for the update - I especially like "The Daily".  As you're updating categories can you have the headers in the "Create" match the other categories you have or will create.

Suggestion for the design to organize topic sections - follow the way the current testing threads are designed with Pre-Signup Comments, Comments, and Reviews; the topics could use that flow from a main tab (for Drivers for instance) to sub-tabs for General Discussion, Official Testing (of gear people are chosen to test), and Unofficial Testing (for those moved to do own testing).  The parallel structure through the forums would make sense sorting through the threads, putting channel topics and threads into lanes so content is  easier to find, perhaps making posts sortable [Alphabetical by title, Alphabetical by manufacturer, Date of review, etc] to enable someone to research what they are looking for using less effort whether a regular or new member.

I have a feeling we will move away from tabs as much as we can. They have a tendency to hide more content and often users miss sections. As mentioned the testing section will be addressed this off-season.

One other thing to note is the testing system was a complete custom build and was part of the reason there were so many bugs to start. It runs on a different platform entirely and which is also why all of tests could not be covered into it so we would essentially have to start all brand new and fresh which I'm not quite looking to do at this time.

This is mainly looking to avoid redundant sections and merge them into the appropriate section as well as making things simpler to navigate within the current platform we have.

I’m glad we got a heads up this time before the changes

We will continue to work to be as open and transparent as possible with the membership moving forward with any forum changes and goings on. 

We all use the forum and all want to have a good experience here and it's really the least we can do.

Excited to see the changes, and definitely agree on the Losing-the-Tabs idea, as having just been a part of a test, I found that I was pointing people (within the "comment" tab) to the "Review" tab multiple times, and (it could just be my browser, but I'm guessing it wasn't just me) every time I loaded the test, it brought me halfway down the "review" post - so I'd have to navigate back to the top of the page, select "comments" and then was able to see the latest comments.  Probably just a bug, but it's something I noticed repeatedly and just learned to deal with - but if I was a one-time clicker, it might drive me crazy and/or lead to confusion. 

Question:  Can I still call "Drivers" "Boom Sticks" in my head when I click on it?  Please? 🙂

Jamie,

 

These are the two categories/drop down menus I'm referring to. It'd be nice if we had the same categories and subheaders regardless of where you're at in the menu system.  Hope the images are self explanatory. 

p.s. nice to see the Content Corner up and running.
